Two-Tone Putty Tat

Looking through my Inspiration Jar this week, I picked out the following inspirational messages, make a card using a Penny Black image, and embossed background, a charm or embellishment and only two colours.  This is what I came up with...  I used a blue and sandstone striped background paper and decided to use those two colours as my two tone colour combo.  I then took some beige cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the dotted effect.  I then coloured in the image with Promarkers Sandstone and Sky Blue.  I know I have added a little black onto the card as well, but as the image was stamped with black ink, I thought it would be okay to use a little bit more, and after all, the challenge was only set by myself, so I could afford to bend the rules just a little.  So, I mounted the image onto black mirri card and then added the large eyelet embellishment onto black mirri cardwith a scalloped edge also.

Hope you like it? Thanks for stopping by,
